. >>> the january 1 deadline to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff is closing in. the president and congress remain just as divided. here i am. and now they're geographically divided, too. cnn's emily schmidt is in the nation's capital this morning. so president obama's in hawaii. house speaker john boehner and other lawmakers have gone home for the holidays. what does all this mean for the chance of getting a deal done before the deadline? >> reporter: no doubt that president obama went to a warmer climate with the weather and probably a warmer climate politically. if there's any negotiating that will be done now, it will have to be done long distance for the next few days. we know that speaker boehner and president obama spoke in washington yesterday before they left. but when you hear their final words to reporters, it shows there is a continued public divide. >> the president and senate democrats have vowed to reject and veto all of our proposals while failing to offer responsible solutions of their own. but the president has -- what the president has offered so far simply won't do anything to
